This is the very first Tesla Model S delivered in the Northwest. I happened upon this car as I was walking home tonight and the Tesla Service Center guys were nice enough to let me in to drool with them all over this car. I’ve written about the Tesla Service guys before, they’re motoring enthusiasts of the highest order.
Tesla’s service center for the Northwest is located in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, I walk and bike by it several times a week. There are always a handful of Tesla Roadsters in the shop for whatever maintenance an electric car requires. Having seen Tesla Roadsters every day for the past couple of years, they are no longer attention grabbing for me.
What has been grabbing my attention is the cars the folks who work at Tesla drive. These guys get it, they’re clearly driving enthusiasts. Two lowered Miatas with 949 Racing 6UL track day wheels and a very nice E30 don’t just by chance happen to park in the same lot. It’s always a good thing to see folks who work on high end cars having good taste in their own cars. When the answer cannot be “Miata”, it is very frequently “E30″.
